Name: Angel's Garden

Location: San Francisco

Type of space: Deck

Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: This was a deck that had nothing going for it and I decided to make it my "Little piece of Heaven". I started to work on it about a year ago and then got so excited about the outcome that I started a little business called "Angel's Garden". I strictly do container gardens for patios and decks in San Francisco. It is a source of great pleasure to work on my space, to tend to it, and to change it from time to time. It takes me away from the everyday stresses of the world. When I'm working out there the time just flies by. PURE JOY

How did you create it?:
I painted the railing yellow and floor blue (my favorite colors), put in an outdoor rug and started to collect beautiful containers and pots that I picked up at garage and estate sales. Added some lovely chairs that I recovered and a table that I stripped and decoupaged. I have grown everything from annuals, perennials, and vegetables on my deck with great success.

Recommended store, site, product or resource?
I get most of my flowers from Home Depot and Target. They both have a great selection and are reasonably priced. I've become familiar with the staff at both of these stores and can call them if I need something specific for my deck or for a clients deck.
